We'll Never Forget Vince Wilfork and His Overalls

We'll Never Forget Vince Wilfork and His Overalls

I'm moving on to smoked meats!

The video ends with a promo for "Vince's farewell tailgate" scheduled for September 7th in "New England", which suggests he will make an appearance before the Patriots' season opener against Kansas City.

Vince Wilfork is one of the most colourful players to grace an National Football League field in recent years.

He tweeted a sponsored video Monday afternoon that showed him untaping his ankles, hanging his cleats up in his locker, and grabbing barbecue tongs. But Belichick made it clear how much Wilfork meant to the organization.

"Peace out, I'm outta here, later", he says as he puffs a cigar.

Wilfork is sure to garner Hall of Fame consideration, as he was a game-changer in the middle of the defensive line.

Wilfork was selected by the Pats in the 2004 draft and went on to anchor the team's defense as a nose tackle and defensive tackle through the 2014 season.

A prankster and jokester wherever he played, here is another one of Wilfork's finest moments. He started every game he played as a Texan, even while his career and his abilities were slowly winding down.

Wilfork finished his career with 559 tackles, 16 sacks, three interceptions, 26 pass deflections, four forced fumbles and 12 fumble recoveries during his career.
